Clean Streets Campaign Trial
The clean streets campaign trial which began on 19 December 2014 has been extended until August when when the Council will consider the proposal, and if there is value in making it permanent.
Businesses can put out their blue bags and pre-paid cardboard recycling in the collection zones at 8am and 2pm, and the items will be picked up half an hour later. The 11 collection areas have been located so that staff from nearby businesses have no more than 50m to walk with their bags and recycling. See the press release below for more information.
